Behram is an
impact crateron the anti-Saturn hemisphere of Saturn's moon Enceladus. Behram was first observed in "Cassini" images during that mission's March 2005 flyby of Enceladus. It is located at 15.0° South Latitude, 177.0° West Longitude, and is 13 kilometers across. Behram's rim overlaps that of Shakashik, suggesting that Behram formed after Shakashik. Following formation, numerous criss-crossing fractures cut across Behram, forming canyons hundreds of meters deep along the crater's rim, as well as a region of disrupted terrain on the crater floor.
Behram is named after the son of a Persian king in the tale "
Prince Behram and the Princess Al-Datma" from " The Book of One Thousand and One Nights".
